I haven't read the book but I've definitely been exploring the concept. I've lately been learning Kundalini Yoga, which has gotten me deeply into learning about many of the ancient Indian beliefs, especially about the goddess Shakti and about the Universe being born out of the divine play of the goddess Shakti and the god Shiva.
I used to not see how male-dominated the Bible was -- I mean, I just assumed that the fact that it seemed to come largely from a male perspective was simply a reflection of the culture of the times. I didn't realize, back then, that male-dominated culture wasn't the oldest way of life and that this unnatural way of life actually suppressed the older cultures -- cultures that were somewhat similar to the few hunter-gatherer cultures that are still in existence today, in which women play very active and important roles.
Of course, there are many different cultures so I'm not trying to lump everyone in one group. I simply do see cultures as either being predominantly masculine (upholding values like aggressiveness, competitiveness, dualism, and linear thinking) or predominantly feminine (upholding values like cooperation, empathy, non-dualism, and non- linear thinking), although, of course, they are in all different places along the spectrum. It is sometimes helpful to me (to my limited mind) to generalize a bit, even though I know that some folks take offense to any form of generalization...which is why I'm going on about it right now, in the hopes of preventing someone from feeling offended.
At any rate, I am starting to realize how much Christianity has missed out on (in my opinion) because of the suppression of the Gnostic gospels. I hope I'm not saying anything that's too unsuitable for the Spirituality forum.
